It assumes the reader has a basic knowledge of outdoor soccer skills such as dribbling, passing, trapping, and shooting. There are numerous books that cover these skills in detail with tips, drills, and instruction. This book does not cover the rules of play. While the rules are generally the same in most leagues, each facility has its own house rules. This book assumes the reader knows the rules already.This book covers the aspects of indoor soccer that are different from outdoor soccer—and there are many. In fact, the differences are so numerous and dramatic that it is not a stretch to say that indoor and outdoor soccer are two entirely different sports. We will discuss the important differences between indoor and outdoor soccer, and cover systems and strategies for both offense and defense for indoor soccer. We will analyze the transition game, strategies for substitution, goal keeping, and special plays. Finally, we will cover some drills that are specifically designed to practice indoor soccer skills.This book is appropriate for all skill levels.
